Sunday Post: A look back at February

Weekly meme to talk about books and a little about my personal life

Sunday-Post

Kimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Note: I haven’t done a Sunday Post since last February. I found this Post which should have posted on March 1, but I think we were traveling or I didn’t have internet available. Anyway, I thought I would post the “Personal Life” section which talked about what I had done in February. I was struck by how different life is now.

Next week I hope to post a regular Sunday Post for what I’m doing and reading.

Personal life

What I did in February

My Ragdoll kitten turned six months old and will be a year old in September. Elf is a senior girl at over 10 years old.

I made cards for birthdays, thank you’s and Valentine’s Day. (I’ve made lots of cards to send during the pandemic.)

My daughters made a surprise visit to us over Valentine’s Day and it was wonderful to see them. (Now we wouldn’t surprise each other like that!)

Toward the end of February we went to Seattle to visit our son. Before we left for Seattle we knew there was a Covid 19 case in Seattle, but had no idea what would happen in the months to come. As you can see from the photos we did quite a few activities with lots of people around us. By the time we left Seattle, Covid 19 was in nursing homes there and I felt we should quarantine for two weeks when we returned to Iowa. Before the end of our two weeks the whole of Iowa and the rest of the U.S. were quarantining.

I’ll see you all next week and look forward to seeing what you’ve been doing.

Personal life

I’m having fun in Indiana with my daughter. We did a mini road trip south of Indianapolis last Sunday and it was so much fun. Beautiful area with rolling hills, lots of trees and autumn leaves. The leaves had mostly fallen from the trees, but it was still pretty. Apparently it’s a very popular area in October when the leaves are changing and still in the trees.

I’ve worked on cards during the week while my daughter is at work as well as doing some cooking. And taking the dogs out and throwing lots of balls! There was snow one day during the week and then it got very cold–down towards zero degrees Fahrenheit. It’s warmed up a little and with the sun the snow has melted.

This weekend my older daughter is visiting as well as a cousin and her teenage daughter. The teenage daughter is playing soccer with her team so a group of us relatives are watching her play both days. Brings back memories of my kids playing soccer. Both the games we are watching she has played inside in a huge complex with three indoor fields!
